REPOST from my personal page... Well here comes a real post, not edited or filtered for likes and follows. But just my real life struggle…
Today’s the day I face my biggest fear, yes my BIGGEST fear. Wearing a bathing suit out in public!
Here I am again with an obstacle I thought I had faced a long time ago. Crash diets, keto, plant based eating 3 pregnancies one miscarriage. Little by little the weight creeped back on and before I knew it I was pregnant with our rainbow baby.
So what am I supposed to do? Should I Live this pregnancy in misery knowing that I’ve undone any hard work that I put in. Or should I embrace this life and thank God for the gift He has given me. I think we all know the answer.
I have not worn a bathing suit in 3 years! That’s how long this weight has held me back. That’s 3 missed summers running through the sprinklers with my kids, 3 years of ocean visits that didn’t happen.
This is the the 1st year I’ve said enough is enough. I will no longer let this rule me. I will make memories with my children no matter what. I will enjoy this pregnancy just like I did with every one before it. I WILL NOT let my weight rule my life.
So I’m here to tell you I am not defined by a number on the scale, and neither are you. Life is to beautiful to be held back by something so ridiculous.
Let’s make some beautiful memories this summer even if we jiggle a little. I would love to re-activate this page as a tracker for staying healthy in my pregnancy and controlling weight gain.
I look forward to interacting with y’all again.
